Pat Cummins of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Shreyas Iyer of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) engaged in lighthearted banter hours before Sunday’s IPL 2024 final at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium, as they attempted to remind each other of what to anticipate in the championship match.

The IPL 2024 final, scheduled to take place on Sunday, May 26, at the M Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk, is about to take place. In the league’s summit match, SRH and KKR will square off for the ultimate prize as the two clubs play each other for the first time.

Both teams used an aggressive strategy throughout the competition to get to the IPL 2024 championship match. The Orange Army has relied heavily on opening batsmen Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma, while the two-time IPL champions have been led by Phil Salt and Sunil Narine.

In the current tournament, the Pat Cummins-led squad has performed poorly versus the Shreyas Iyer-led team. The Hyderabad team’s first IPL 2024 match ended in a close four-run loss to KKR. In the “Qualifier 1” match in Ahmedabad, the Knight Riders outperformed the Hyderabad-based squad.

Iyer reminded Cummins of the team’s advantage based on their season record. Cummins maintained that the squad had saved their best for last. Preview of the IPL 2024 final between KKR and SRH.

“Dear Pat! today, I thought it might be fun to drop you a little note. First off, let me just say you’ve done an amazing job leading the Orange Army this season. This season we have given you a tough time. Let me remind you, you faced the same opponent at a different venue. But today you will be against colours that will be familiar to you purple and gold. Here’s to a thrilling final. May the best team win, and by best, I mean ours,” Iyer said in his address to Cummins.

“Thanks for the little note. Kind of you. Indeed. You two have led by example in a lot of swag, but I can’t help but think about our stellar win at this very ground. I hope the KKR boys know what to expect. Come Sunday, you might say you’ve given us a tough time this season, but let me assure you the Orange Army has saved the best for last,” Cummins told Iyer.
SRH has yet to defeat KKR this season, losing by four runs in the league stage and eight wickets in the Qualifier 1 match.
